Vol. 15 : No. 12< >
Letter from President-Elect, Glenda Mathis
Dear USDLA Members and Sponsors:
It is certain that 2001-2002 will offer many challenges for all of us and at every level of our lives. Despite those challenges, there are always opportunities in our midst.
I believe that USDLA is one of those opportunities.
It's an opportunity to stay current…through events like the Policy Forum, the Telecon events and the other public activities that bring in the voices of industry leaders, legislators, educators, and end-users.
While membership in a professional association like USDLA may challenge our time and our energy, these are the things that remind me that USDLA is one of those opportunities in our midst.
I feel very fortunate to assume the presidency of USDLA at this time in our history. So much commitment has gone into building and sustaining this organization and as a result, there are many achievements.
We have a rich history that has given us a clear purpose and dynamic goals.
With all of this going for us, USDLA itself has an incredible opportunity and that is to impact and serve the distance learning profession. As an organization, this is our challenge for 2001-2002 and it is one more opportunity in our midst.
Thank you all for being a part of this association. I encourage you to participate.
Visit the web site. Write letters. Tell us what you need. Give us feedback.
Come to the events. Let someone know that you would like to serve on a committee. Help us stay accountable to our purpose and our goals. These are the actions it takes for us to individually and collectively maximize this wonderful range of opportunities we have available to us in the year ahead.
